In the late 90s Jason DiSalvo was setting records around the globe for being the youngest American in 125cc and 250cc World Grand Prix. Riding motorcycles before the age of two, DiSalvo was already quite experienced when he began racing in Europe. Prior to joining the AMA Pro Road Racing series, DiSalvo earned championship titles in multiple WERA classes as well as the 125cc and 250cc AMA Grand National Championships.
Young Dislavo joined the AMA Road Racing series in 2002 and immediately began turning heads in Supersport. He put tremendous pressure on defending champion, Jimmy Moore, and almost won the Pit Daddy contest after the 2002 finale at VIR. DiSalvo entered the Superstock class the year after, and for the next few years the youngster continued to improve and mature in both
the Superstock and Supersport series.
During the ’08 season DiSalvo captured third overall in the American Superbike Championship behind Ben Spies and Mat Mladin despite having only two podium finishes. In 2009, DiSalvo earned six poles and had six podium finishes. He also raced in the 8 Hours at Daytona for team Roadracingworld.com where his team scored second. The following year DiSalvo returned to the international racing stage by competing in the 2010 World Supersport Championship with ParkinGO Triumph. However, the season quickly turned into a failure and DiSalvo cut ties with the team mid-way through the season under controversy, the American questioning the competitiveness of his machinery.
For 2011 DiSalvo will return to AMA Racing in the Daytona SportBike series after penning a deal with the Latus Ducati Racing squad.
